This was today’s bargain, nectarines. They were almost half the price, and fresh from wherever they came from – probably Spain or Italy. Is that all? Of course, if food is a bargain it usually means that there are enough to buy and the quality is good.
Clothes? Not really. At the age of 73 I no longer need the newest fashion, I know what is comfortable and clothes are overpriced. What you pay in a shop or boutique is usually 50% more than what the shop owner pays. The shop owners buy it at the wholsale supplier, who has also already added his 50%. eventually you pay probably 90% more than the original price so it is no longer a bargain.
Fruit and veg can be a bargain. Just keep your eyes open is all I can say.
And now to my nectarines:I will make a Swiss tart with them. Slice the nectarines, put them on pastry and pour a mixture of cream, eggs and sugar over them with some cornflour for thickening: bake in the oven and sprinkle with sugar when finished – that is my bargain.
